If you think that Porsche 991 Turbo is the most powerful car, you’re wrong. People from Gemballa prove this with its latest concept – Gemballa GT at the Las Vegas SEMA show.
Already at first glance of the vehicle’s silhouette, the potent transformation of the Porsche 991 Turbo series into the Gemballa GT Concept becomes evident. Masculine bodywork expansion in line with striking front and rear modifications creates a self-assured appearance.
However, the latest development of the Leonberg-based premium tuner, Gemballa, provides much more than a fascinating new aerodynamics concept: The performance increase to 828 hp in combination with the configurable performance handling system makes the GT Concept one of the strongest and fastest sports cars for use on the street as well as on the race track.
The performance of the 3.8 litre boxer biturbo engine has been increased by the GEMBALLA engine technicians from a standard 540hp/397kW to 828 hp/609 kW at 7,000 rpm. At the same time, the maximum torque has increased from 660 Nm to 952 Nm at 5,200 rpm.
The Performance Turbo system includes intake manifolds and air intake housings made of carbon, reworked cylinder heads and valves, new throttle valve bodies, high-performance air filters, a folding-controlled sports exhaust system with metal catalytic converters and a new engine and gearbox management system. Measures that are plain to see. At 2.38 seconds to 100 km/h, the GT Concept outperforms its serial counterpart by more than a second. The new top speed is sensational: Due to increased performance, the top speed is well over 360 km/h.
In the interior, Gemballa combines the finest materials with proven motor sport components. The upholsterers only use selected leather hides and the best alcantara for the covers of the fittings, bucket seats and the roll bar. Precisely crafted embroidering of the Gemballa logo in the foot mats and the head rests provides an additional visual focus.
